The view from the hidden ledge

  • Description 

    A ledge located above Beginner's Luck which currently contains one line in the center of the ledge. Excellent morning sun as it is entirely above the treeline.

    It isn't really "hidden" in that it is hard to find as it can be plainly seen from Chockstone or the top of Fresh Meat and Paradox but it has remained dormant through 3 decades of development at Upper West.

    Getting There 

    1. Climb Beginner's Luck.

    2. Climb Rented Mule and climb over the anchors.

    3. Climb Fresh Meat and traverse left.

    4. Climb Paradox and traverse left.

    A bit of a hidden gem that sat right above popular climbs for decades. A short crux section and a fantastic upper half of easy exposed climbing. Reliably dry, even if Fresh Meat and Paradox are wet.Work up and right with delicate foot work to a high first bolt with a great clipping hold. Bite down on crimps through the overhang to make a long move to a good sidepull. A few more moves leads to a good stance below the crux. Pull through the crux with a great deadpoint and pull up with power to rea...[more]   Browse More Classics in VT
